Sterling Steak and Lounge owner Jackson Sterling knows music, restaurants and brunch. His father and business partner, Lance Sterling, was part of the House of Blues franchise and opened many of his own music venues. In California, where Jackson is originally from, he managed gospel brunches every Sunday at The Rose in Pasadena for over 400 people.
Hosting brunch in his new hometown, Park City, and at his new restaurant, Sterling Steak and Lounge, was bound to be an enjoyable endeavor. When Jackson began offering brunch, he wanted it to be available to everybody — especially locals.
“We are a steakhouse, but even so, I want the community to be able to have an affordable brunch,” says Jackson.
Sunday brunch at Sterling Steak and Lounge is an unbeatable deal. It’s $39 and it’s all you can eat. Kids up to age 12 just have to pay their age — so it’s $6 for a 6-year-old. Brunch runs from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., serving both diners who are up and ready early and those who are enjoying a lazy Sunday morning.
The expansive buffet covers all types of brunchers — from those looking for a steak and eggs breakfast to those craving lunch. The offerings include an omelet station, a chicken and waffle station, a carving station with prime rib and roasted ham, a seasonal vegetable station, mac and cheese, and Sterling Steak and Lounge’s popular 14-hour slow-cooked St. Louis-style ribs.
Diners can enjoy their meal outdoors with views over the Swaner Preserve or cozy up in the rock ‘n’ roll-inspired lounge and dining room, which has leather chairs, live-edge wood tables, a copper bar, and classic rock music videos from the ’70s and ’80s.
“If you’ve seen our patio, [you know] it’s absolutely gorgeous. It looks over the Swaner Preserve, which I love. It’s part of the reason why I took this space,” Jackson explains. “That and the amphitheater out there as well, of course.”
As an ode to his musical roots, Jackson is booking musicians to play during brunch and will host a free concert in the Newpark Amphitheater on Sunday evenings.
Rooted in community, food and music, Sterling Steak and Lounge is motivated to keep Kimball Junction a “haven for locals” by providing a family-friendly space, good food, and an atmosphere that supports musicians.
